Today I’ll be talking with Jonathan Green and John Schumann on RN Drive, ‘In the Drawing Room’ about our new picture books and about writing war for young people. John is author and singer of the classic Vietnam song ‘I was Only Nineteen’ which is now a picture book, illustrated by Craig Smith. My book, ‘Meet the Anzacs’ is illustrated by talented young painter, Max Berry.
Our books both talk about war, but different wars and different perspectives. But so much is the same. No one can ever be prepared for how war will affect them and no one is the same after experiencing war.
Tune in to RN Drive AM 621 between 6pm and 8pm tonight to hear what we talked about. There will be a podcast on the website later.
